Still holding the torch for Balanchine

By SHANON VERGHIS
The Sydney Morning Herald
February 25, 2004

Victoria Simon's defining private passion, future ballet career, and then, professional life after dance, was sealed the day she twirled on stage as a candy cane in George Balanchine's debut production of The Nutcracker.

Decades later, she remembers that first performance with the vividness of someone pinpointing the flowering of a love affair.

Tonight, the Australian Ballet will pay tribute to a great adopted American choreographer when it opens the Sydney season of Mr B - a tribute to George Balanchine at the Opera House, a far-flung point in worldwide celebrations marking 100 years since his birth.

Swan Lake, Australian Ballet

By JILL SYKES
The Sydney Morning Herald
April 29, 2004

It is one of many visual, verbal and stylistic connections that weave their way through this fascinating, engrossing version of the classic ballet. Yet you don't need any background to find yourself involved in the vivid storytelling - though some knowledge of the British royal family over the past decade adds a piquant touch to this fictitious tale.

Swan Lake, Australian Ballet

By JILL SYKES

May 6, 2004

One of the many great qualities of Graeme Murphy's choreography for Swan Lake is that it shapes the characters and tells the story. If it is danced well enough, the movement will convey the essentials, no matter the strength of the interpretations - which, with four casts, are interestingly varied.

Inspiring programs well worth celebrating

By DEBORAH JONES
The Australian
May 25, 2004

STEPHEN Baynes is the poet of the Australian Ballet. Maina Gielgud had the foresight to make him a resident choreographer with the AB in 1995 and since then he has given the company some of its most intelligent and emotionally satisfying work.

Swan Lake

By HILARY CRAMPTON

Murphy stages these strategically, occasionally slowing down or freezing the action of the corps de ballet to highlight a moment, at other times wrapping the whole in a swirl of interaction, establishing the who's who and pecking order of palace society.

Murphy has devised wonderful yet demanding roles for his principals. The dances are complex, requiring enormous stamina, technical ability and dramatic power. It says a great deal about the strength of the company that all four casts could produce excellent and divergent performances.

Triple bill trips the light fantastic

There are two things a choreographer needs to create new work - music and dancers. For the Australian Ballet's resident choreographer, Stephen Baynes, the problem was getting the dancers.

This cryptically named triple bill, created for the Australian Ballet by resident choreographer Stephen Baynes, is not a complete success, but it regularly and entertainingly shows his ability to respond to a range of music and refusal to be typecast as a lyrical neo-classicist.

Angel to grace ballet stage

By JO ROBERTS

"Explosive" is one word often used to describe the 28-year-old's dancing. Little wonder: he was a national ballet champion in Spain at the age of 15, joined the prestigious American Ballet Theatre as a soloist at 18 (his predecessor at ABT was Mikhail Baryshnikov), and reached the highest rank of principal just a year later.

Burnett is a choreographer, a maker of ballets. He is one of that rare breed whose business cards should read "Have steps, will travel". Next month the Australian Ballet gives his latest creation, Aesthetic Arrest, its first performance as part of an international triple bill, Red Hot & New.

La Fille Mal Gardee

By NEIL JILLETT

August 29, 2004

The enduring success of this comic version of Romeo and Juliet is largely due to its mixture of robust sexiness and corny charm. These qualities rarely emerged on the opening night of Fille's first revival since 1993.
